“It is a new experience for him,” said PSG coach Unai Emery.

“When you play well, you open all the papers and you listen to all the sports shows and they say that you are the best.

“You need to be able to balance your mentality, your emotions. When you play badly, you have to be ready for the criticism.”

His teammate, Neymar is set to return to the side, after missing their last match through a suspension.

PSG would seal qualification with a win over Anderlecht and if Celtic lose to Bayern Munich.

Manchester United:
Jose Mourinho has no new injury worries in his team but has kept the squad selection close to his chest.
His side will confirm qualification with a win over Benfica tonight, and that feels very likely as they already have 3 victories in the group.
